This five-bed, five-bath architectural gem designed by Garrett Nelson is on the market for $2.15 million in Myers Park at 2014 Dartmouth Place.

The 4,673-square-foot home is elegant, but still feels cozy with natural light and lots of greenery. The expansive front porch is one of the best features of the home; the doors open to create a true indoor-outdoor living space off the front of the house. Fun fact: That’s where the designer and his wife were married.

There are owner’s suites on the main and second floors; 10.5-foot ceilings downstairs and 9-foot ceilings upstairs; and high-end finishes throughout.

Price: The home was on the market this time last year asking $2.35M. This time around, the sellers are asking $2.15 million.

Listing agent and current owner Mark Guthrie says they decided on a $200,000 price decrease because of comparable sales in the area. The average price for single-family homes in the 28207 zip code, where this home is located, are slightly down from last year — from about $1.48 million in 2019 to $1.46 million during the first six months of 2020.

Location: Located at 2014 Dartmouth Place, this home is within walking distance to The Duke Mansion and popular restaurants like Stagioni and RuRu’s.

This section of Myers Park — including the tree-lined streets — was designed by architect John Nolen and his assistant Earle Sumner Draper in 1911 as one of the city’s first “suburbs.” It’s always been home to some of the city’s most expensive homes.
